"[The Jakarta Provincial Administration's] policy on restaurants will bring a sense of normalcy, namely late night eats, that have been missing since the Covid-19 pandemic struck last year," he said. "The move can also stimulate Jakarta's economy, as the restaurants stand to profit."

The sense of normalcy also extended to protect the sensibilities of those who are fasting.  

“Restaurants operating in the daytime are urged to use curtains to cover their establishments, out of respect for those who are fasting,” said a circular issued by the Jakarta Tourism and Creative Economy Services head Gumilar Ekalaya. “Live music and DJs are also prohibited.”

The prohibitions extended to the serving of alcohol. “Bars in restaurants and cafes are not allowed to operate during Ramadan. This prohibition also extended to wine bars, liquor stores and similar establishments.”

As with the rest of the year, the number of diners is limited to 50 percent capacity.
